Tolpuddle Vineyards Chardonnay 2021

In spite of its youth, very good Aussie Chard, standing its ground easily against more prestigious names. Outstanding. — 7 months ago

Kelvedon Estate

Pinot Noir 2012

The 2nd of 2 Tasmanian Pinot Noirs. Dense Ruby in colour - much darker than the Tolpuddle. Rich aromatics of smoky oak and black fruits - Cherry and Plum which carry through to the full bodied palate. Generous flavours. Finishes dry. Incredibly youthful for 8 years of age. One of the bigger bodied Pinots I’ve had for a while. — 3 years ago

Pinot Noir 2017

Toffee caramel notes showing the oak influence along with bright red cherries and other red fruits. On the palate a nice savoury earthiness - very Tassie. From the Coal River and only 5 klms from the high profile Tolpuddle Vineyard. Tasted again 9 weeks later on 19th February with consistent notes. Aromatic Bright and Fresh. A lot of these Tasmanian producers are boutique small operations who do not distribute overseas and can sell the lot in Australia. — 5 years ago

Tolpuddle Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

My first Tasmania Pinot. That had some pop for cool climate. Ripe and round. Not to the level of RRV Pinot because it did have some tension and brightness. I'd try some more vintages. — 6 years ago

Coal River Valley Pinot Noir 2015

Red fruits particularly cherry with stalky notes although I notice only 50% whole bunch fermentation. Quite a sweet palate initially - savoury and fruity at the same time. The oak influence is perfectly judged. Delicious - what a beautiful wine. Emphasising yet again that the Coal River Tasmania is perfect for Pinot Noir. The next night, just as impressive. — 8 months ago

2015 for this label is outstanding, i remember shivering when i first tasted it, i could not believe the beauty of this Pinot from Tassie.

An outstanding new World Pinot. I enjoyed this as much as the Wendouree and pointed this slightly higher.

Fair enough. I guess this bottle, if not at peak yet, its definitely closer to it than the Wendouree, so it totally makes sense, doesn't it? 😉 plus i wished all Tassie pinots would drink like this '15. We definitely can't compare the two styles, two different directions in every way.

Giant Steps

Single Vineyard Tosq Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

The Nocton Vineyard from Coal River Valley in Tassy just 8 minutes from Tolpuddle Vineyard. Fantastic wine which presents the same logistical nightmare as TPV for us.

The Central Otago TOSQ reveals even larger nightmares as it’s partially fermented before making the journey to a residential winery with tight restrictions on operations.

@Scott Rowe At the recent Pinot Shop Tasting in Launceston I spoke with your viticulturalist at Tolpuddle re the whole logistics of getting grapes from the Coal River to the Adelaide Hills for crushing. He reckoned the chilling in the refrigerated container was a big benefit to the grapes condition.

Dry River

Martinborough Pinot Noir 2015

Very dense crimson/Ruby in colour. A rich full bodied Pinot Noir - as I’ve written in previous Dry River PN tastings - a Shiraz drinkers Pinot. My problem with Dry River PNs has always been the density and lack of nuance even when you cellar them for a long time. I much preferred the 2013 Tolpuddle PN the previous night. — a year ago

M3 Vineyard Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2012

Quite pale Lemon considering its age. Funky solids musty aromas. Medium bodied medium acid with grapefruit notes on palate and reasonable length. A good Chardonnay from this premium Adelaide Hills producer. From cousins Shaw and Smith - Michael Hill-Smith was Australia’s first Master of Wine. Have spread their wings to Tasmania with the premium Tolpuddle. — 4 years ago

Single Vineyard Block 8 Pinot Noir 2014

Single vineyard block 8.
Never released to public.
Bottled straight to Magnum only for maximum pleasure.

Don't mind the incorrect vintage on the makeshift label 😕
